Barack Obama Wins Ohio

Voters in Ohio on Tuesday cast their ballot for Barack Obama, giving the president the state's 18 Electoral votes.

President Barack Obama won Ohio’s 18 electoral votes on Tuesday, defeating Republican Mitt Romney.

In the 2008 presidential election, the state voted for Barack Obama, and since the 1990s, has voted for the overall winner of the presidential race every time.

Romney and Obama campaigned aggressively in Ohio. The state has typically been a battleground state in recent presidential elections. 

The economy was a key issue for many voters in the state, as was healthcare.

Just because someone disagrees with someone does not make them a hater. I am not ever going to be silent. Let's see what Obama does with HIS economy now? Or, will it be forever Bush's? A true leader is someone who steps up and takes responsibility which is something I have NEVER seen from Obama.

The joke is that Obama was re-elected with the pitiful way he has governed. You call other people a joke? You are a sanctimonious, self-important bigot. Anyone that disagrees with your ideas MUST be prejudiced. Really, those kind of arguments should be left for children. Kool-Aid anyone? Oh, that's right you have already drank it all.

The headlines should be screaming "Millions of Americans duped again". Axelrod and the Chicago gang ran one of the sleaziest campaigns ever defining Romney as something he was not. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Sadly, we will get more of the same from a president who was in over his head from day one. The Obamabots swallowed their lies, hook, line and sinker.

Exactly, Keith. That Albert Einstein quote is right on the money. What money is that? Oh, you know, the money we keep borrowing from China. The money that people expect to buy them things that they are "entitled to." What happened to a strong work ethic and working for what you want and need. The founding fathers didn't even want non-landowners to have the vote. I used to question that and being a female, the fact that women have had the right to vote for less than 100 years was a concern of mine. Yet, when the people who "have not" now outnumber the people that "have", keeping in mind that we only "have" because we have worked for it, there seem to be numerous problems which are completely compounded by the fact that this is an entitlement society. I have been on food stamps and had a medical card for roughly one year and trust me, I NEVER want to go back to that. People need help from time to time, but when it becomes a way of life, we see the end of America as we know it.
